Have you tried this:

go to: %appdata%/Natural Selection 2/system_options.xml

And change this:
<device>D3D9</device>
to this:
<device>D3D11</device>

?

Jaqarll Sep 17, 2013 @ 1:03pm 
Press Windowskey+R and copy in %appdata%/Natural Selection 2/system_options.xml

ok i see that its in internet explorer and how do i edit it?
Jaqarll Sep 17, 2013 @ 1:08pm 
Type in %appdata%/Natural Selection 2/ to go to the folder, then right click the system_options.xml and open it with notepad.

Open it in Notepad and not in the Internet Explorer to Edit the file....

type this after you press Winbutton+R "%APPDATA%\Natural Selection 2"
Then right-click the system options and open with notepad, side scroll and there you will find the values you need to change.

Thx for the help Jaqarll!
